American Horror Story will be airing its tenth season later this year, while the theme remains a mystery, FX has revealed that the show won't be going anywhere for the foreseeable future. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's award-winning anthology series has been renewed for three more seasons matching the previous pick up back in 2018. Some fans of the long-running series were concerned over its future after Murphy signed a mega-deal with Netflix last year. However, Murphy was keen to stress that more AHS was in the hands of FX as he was more than happy to keep coming up with twisted ideas.
FX's John Landgraf announced the multi-season renewal during the Winter TCA press tour, here's what he had to say.
“Ryan and Brad are the undisputed masters of horror TV, having created the anthological limited series with American Horror Story and sustaining its success for nearly a decade as FX’s highest-rated series. We are grateful to them and Dana Walden and our studio partners for committing to another three years. AHS has showcased a wealth of award-winning actors since day one, and we appreciate the contributions of everyone, including Ryan, Brad and fellow executive producers Tim Minear, James Wong, Alexis Martin Woodall and Bradley Buecker, the writers, directors, cast and crew for each new, unforgettable instalment of American Horror Story.”
The most recent cycle of the series, 1984, was the first season not to feature AHS mainstays Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson. As a long term fan of the series, 1984 was a missed opportunity that only got interesting during its final couple of episodes. Fans were left slightly miffed after weeks of speculation as to 'the twist' of the season, only for the reveal to be nowhere near as inventive. While the last couple of seasons have run out of steam long before the finale, the beauty of an anthology is there is always a reason to come back to it each year.
American Horror Story Season 10 will arrive on FX later this year.
